The Year was 2016 and it finally happened, the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. RIP, Curse of the Billy Goat, in a game 7 for the ages, the Cubs overcame the resilient Indians to win their first title since 1908 and wash away the last vestiges of the longest title drought in American Sports. I watched every game that year along with my sister in law and brother in law. I've been a Chicago Cubs' fan my whole life, being from Illinois and my dad listening to the games on the radio. So for Father's day that year, I bought tickets for him, my two brothers and nephew to go see the Cubs play the Cardinals, they lost that game but I was so glad that i got tickets for Pops to see them play at Wrigley Field.
I got to go to a
game too, We stopped in Denver from our DisneyLand vacation and saw the Cubs play the Rockies, they lost that game too but I got to see the CUBS play after a 2 hour rain delay. You should of been there I believe there more CUBs fans in Denver than Rockie Fans, it was fun oh and did i mention my brother lives in Cheyenne so we met him and his crew (wife and 4 kids) there.
But in the end, it all came down to Game 7 on Nov 2 10 innings. After trailing the Indians 3 games to 1 in the 2016 World Series, the Cubs mounted an EPIC comeback (which made grown men cry) to take the series in a dramatic 7th game that ended in a 8-7 score after 10 innings of play; with the WIN the Cubs claimed their 1st World Series title since 1908!!! I've watched the series over again at least twice, it doesn't get old and I still get excited and scared at that last inning. What an amazing moment in sports history.
